II.The Power of a Wish

Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight their illness.

When Children are battling a critical illness, so much of normal childhood is taken away from them – it is exhausting, both emotionally and physically.

A Wish is something that gives kids the opportunity to look outside their illness – it restores a sense of childhood back to the child and normalcy back to the family.
